Marco Brogioni was born in Siena, Italy, in 1976. He received the degree in engineering from the University of Siena, Siena, Italy, in 2003 with a thesis in the field of the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction. Since 2004, he has been with the Istituto di Fisica Applicata “Nello Carrara” (IFAC) Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Sesto Fiorentino, Italy. He worked with the Microwave Remote Sensing Group. In 2005 he started the PhD course in remote sensing at the University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, and he obtained the Ph.D. degree in 2008. He has been in 2006-2007 Visitor Student at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
His research deals with passive and active microwave remote sensing applied to snow using satellite (Aqua, Envisat, Seawinds) and ground-based data and with the development of passive and active microwave models for snow and soil. He has been involved in several European projects carried out by the MRSG at IFAC. He was in the local organizing committee of the 10th MicroRad Symposium. Since 2005 he served as a reviewer for the IEEE Transaction on Geoscience and Remote Sensing and for the IGARSS symposiums.
